Hello. Woof. I am exhausted! This weekend was an awesome mix of go, go, go, RELAX, work, RUN, clean…eat. Yup there ya go. I ran 13-miles and felt SO GOOD!!! I was in love with today’s run. I can’t figure out why but I was maintaining under 8:30 minute/miles and hardly breathing hard. My legs were loving the run too! Can’t explain it but I WILL TAKE IT!! I needed that confidence boost more than the mileage.
Let’s go to some happiness!!!
#1. Geocaching. Okay someone explain why I didn’t know about this. Basically it is like this never-ending activity where you use GPS to find caches. It’s like this not-so-secret society! They have user names and hide and find things!! SOOOOOO fun!!! Seriously. Google it now. Well, Seattle held a geocaching block party. There were activities to complete all around the Fremont neighborhood. It was such a BLAST!!! And all these geocachers were so nice!! So welcoming to a virgin like me. One of the activities was to de-shell cocoa nibs at Theo’s Chocolate factory AND we got to eat them!!! YES. Here are some highlights:
#2. Mexican Lasagna. Like I’ve said before, I don’t use recipes. I get inspiration from blogs, magazines, cook books but rarely follow the recipes. Last night I took lasagna noodles, black beans, salsa, cheddar cheese, kale (ended up be so good), spinach, nutritional yeast… I think that’s all. Pop in the oven for 45 mins at 350. Golden! It was so good!
#3. Eye brow clean-up. Every couple of months I look in the mirror and I simply can’t function until I get my eye brows shaped! Well that day was Friday. I am really low-maintenance. I get my hair cut once a year, I never get manicures (I bite my nails), I rarely get pedicures (rather pointless when running so many miles) but I will drop $20 for brows. I feel so much better!
How was your weekend? Did you play in the sun? I sure did!! Do you know what geocaching is?? I want so more info!!
